Turf Agronomist

P4 pupils are learning about plants and recently enjoyed a visit from Mr Windows from STRI who came to talk about plant science. 

As a ‘Turf Agronomist’ for the world's leading sports turf consultancy, Mr Windows is responsible for the pristine golf courses, football pitches and tennis courts that we see at major sporting events such as The Open and Wimbledon.

He explained the diverse nature and the huge number of grasses that there are available in the UK.

He also spoke about the technology and the machines used to measure everything from the moisture content of the soil to the speed of the green on a golf course.

The pupils thanked Mr Windows for his visit and everyone enjoyed learning lots on the day!
